District of Innovation

Filed under: Duncanville ISD,Schools |

Duncanville ISD is now a District of Innovation. The Board of Trustees unanimously approved the plan Monday.

The designation provides more local control and decision-making power regarding the school calendar, length of the instructional day and staffing. The District of Innovation Advisory Committee included teachers, parents, administrators, business and community members. They provided input for elements of the plan and removed parts that were not a good fit for our district. To view the plan approved by the Duncanville ISD Board of Trustees, click here.

Before any parts of the District of Innovation Plan can be put into action, policies have to be developed. Using feedback from the committee, those will be developed over the summer. In addition, a District of Innovation sub-committee was created to specifically review teacher certification requirements.
